08:09 AM ET 12.27 | The Knicks can't seem to keep healthy, the latest blow coming to starting point guard Raymond Felton. [Felton] said Wednesday night his right pinkie has a fracture following an X-Ray and he will likely need surgery and be out four to six weeks. The Felton injury is a big blow considering Amar'e Stoudemire is expected back Jan. 1 and Iman Shumpert is gearing up to return later in the month. Jason Kidd and Pablo Prigioni will now be the two point guards. Felton took the X-ray at halftime after sitting out [Wednesday] night's game in what was first diagnosed as sprained ligaments. But when he woke up in even more pain Wednesday and also felt discomfort in his thumb, the Knicks feared the worst.

Four to six weeks is not bad. Even if we slip to 4th I still like our playoff chances against any team in the East. Get that surgery done asap so you can be ready for the post season... that's what it's all about. Let's go Knicks!!!
